My point was not that 3.1.2 is needed right now, but that Christoph
should be building against the latest GnuTLS in general.  Sorry if that
was not clear.

I did offer to set up a BuildBot to produce those DLLs, so I don't think
I was unreasonable.  If the BuildBot can compile them automatically, it
should be easy to use the latest.  If not... I'll work with you and the
GnuTLS developers to make it so.

That's not what I asked, though I truly appreciate the work you've
done.  I mean if I, the user, see that announcement, it would be
nice if it told me where to find the GnuTLS DLLs, and even nicer if they
came with the binary.
